I’m sure it’s been a burning question on your mind since you first encountered this blog 😛
- Herbalife Herbal Aloe Strengthening Shampoo and Herbalife Strengthening Conditioner (see more details about these products here). No parabens or sulphates!
- Bio Oil – did you know that it’s proudly South African!
I have a naughty/disgusting secret – I’m Shea, and I’m a pimple popper. I’m hoping that Bio Oil will live up to its claims and help with the subsequent scarring on my visage. Bio Oil is basically a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. I was initially hesitant to slather oil on my face, but I find that it’s easily absorbed and actually works as a nice primer for blending foundation. It is a member of Beauty Without Cruelty, which means it’s not tested on animals (other than pimple-popping animals, perchance).
- Melaskin Remedy
A natural treatment for sun damaged skin (admission #2: I am a sun-loving pasty), as well as a variety of fungal and viral problems (acne, molluscum, athlete’s foot, moles. eczema, cold sore… Uh oh, I sense admission #3!). All ingredients are 100% organic and the indigenous ingredients (tick for Proudly South African) are harvested sustainably.
- Free & Fresh Roll-on Deodorant (mine is Clear Skies)
“Normal” deodorant contain aluminium, parabens and petrochemicals – enough to make you grow a third nipple. This deodorant range is 100% natural and earth friendly, contains certified organic ingredients with fragrances based on pure aromatherapy essential oils, is gentle on skin, not to mention it actually does reduce perspiration and combats body odour. Fragrant, aluminium free pits for the win!
- Bee Natural All-Healing Balm
I want to bee this stuff. I love the honey smell, and it is the perfect lip balm. Locally sourced ingredients (all natural) make this another Proudly South African product. All Bee Natural products are chemical-, preservative- and fragrance-free, and made by hand. And it literally is an all-healing balm for almost any skin ailment.
- African Organics Natural Shampoo.
This was the first non-toxic shampoo I bought – OK, but my mom and I agree it’s not as nice smelling and lathery as the Herbalife shampoo.
- How arb, it’s bicarb (see why it’s here)
Making me a happy hippy-at-heart
